Oh, how I long to get back to the days before the vile video games existed. You know: when there was no violent crime.
Google Answers: ask a question and trained Google gnomes will answer it for a fee.
OK, that’s not that cool. But what is cool is they’re looking for researchers. I’m gonna apply. Answering other peoples’ dumb-assed questions, learning something in the process, and getting paid for it? That gots to rock.
Getting in on the JesusH obits…
I’m not much for most … uh, “urban” music, but I really like a bunch of TLC stuff. Jeff and I were having an interesting conversation a while back about the band who today had the best chance of being regarded as a Beatles-ish group of talent in the future. IIRC, Jeff was talking about Radiohead and ‘NSync, but for my money (and despite the fact that they don’t play instruments) TLC was a more likely choice.
(Jeff, if you want to add anything on that front, please do.)
It’s been a while since I posted my soon-to-be-procured new computer specs, and since then some things have changed. By all means avoid hitting “Read Article” unless you’re interested in a few gory details.

Raymond Frank Jones was found by police roaming around his trailer park naked with son Robert in hand. Jones, on a freaked out “Angel Dust” trip, had bitten off his son’s thumb. Young Robert’s thumb was recovered from Jones’ gut, but could not be reattached. Jones, currently in custody, is a father of five.
Jesus H. Christ… how many arguments for forced sterilization of idiots do we need in this country? Let’s step up the totalitarianism already.
My CueCat is going nuts. It’s been attached to the side of my monitor (so the scary red light points towards me while I compute) for literally months, and just today, it has started spontaneously registering barcode scans. This has the effect of interupting whatever I’m doing at the moment (which tonight has been editing my epic new video) as the active program gets flooded with gibberish keystrokes.
As far as I can tell, there has been no change with the CueCat’s environment to cause it to go haywire, so it must be attributable to increased paranormal activity in my apartment. Either that, or Phet gave me a barcode tattoo on my forehead in my sleep. Either way, I’m kind of creeped out…
The article says that Deep Throat grossed $600 million. Jeepers.
For those of you who may have forgotten this classic film’s brilliance, you can relive it here — in glorious, vivid ASCII. Enjoy.

This picture was just accidentally sent to my e-mail account at school (Apparantly there’s a Jeff Fred Pease or something that works at the TV station. Weird.) In any case, the picture is still funny in a jacked sort of way.
My question is, what sort of parent would wait around to take a picture of this before giving a swift beating?
Deb and I were going out to get a quick supper on Friday night. Since those wing things at KFC are pretty good, we decided to grab some of those. Then things got a bit strange.

I just got my incarnation of Dave’s Idiot Music Box MP3 server set up and operational. Basically, Idiot Music Box is a computer hooked up to a stereo for the sole purpose of playing MP3s. Supertard is a slightly sup-ed up, yet stupider, version. Kind of.
Er, read on for clarification. Maybe.

It’s too bad, but I guess not too much of a surprise…
I just had a thought about the situation with the nasty Catholic priests in the US.
This article talks about one response, which is a call for the priesthood to abolish celibacy and to allow marriage.
Here’s my thought: wouldn’t it be weird to be, like, a 57-year old priest who has been forced to curb their urges all their lives, and then to suddenly be told by your entire congregation to PLEASE go out and get some, for the sake of the children? And then you’d have to actually go out and court somebody, which would have to be an awkward thing. Basically, they would be making all of these old guys behave like gawky teenagers, which is pretty amusing to me. All of the Catholic priesthood would start behving like a Porky’s movie, going on panty raids and stuff.
I would imagine that, if this all comes to pass, the next problems the Catholic priesthood would face are binge drinking and rowdy Spring Break behavior. And acne.
So like Dave said, I just finished uploading ~3 GB of my MP3s to Nate’s badass server space. This is no doubt very exciting to the 3 people who actually have access.
This seems like a fine time to trumpet some of the new albums I’ve gotten recently. I was allowed to buy two CDs for Phet’s and my recent trip up north, and both of them turned out to be badass.

Phet and I just saw The Sweetest Thing, starring Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, and some hobgoblin-looking guy named Thomas Jane. The verdict? It’s funny, but not really worth dying for.
Uh, there are going to be some minor spoilers here, but that’s okay, since you know you don’t want to see this movie anyway.

I saw this house today, and I think I might make an offer. I hope the owners aren’t jesush.com readers, because otherwise I might be doing some serious damage to my ability to negotiate effectively. Read on for the details.

Will you come over to my house and tell my brother to stop leaving the toilet set up?
Yes. Just as soon as you tell your mom to stop calling me. I was drunk, and it was a one time thing.
Steven Kent of MSNBC.com checks in with his list of the worst modern console games (via Slashdot): “On a whim, Andy McNamara, editor-in-chief of Game Informer Magazine, decided to see if he could beat Kabuki Warrior by tapping his game pad against his buttocks. He lost his first fight or two. Then he figured it out and beat the entire game. He began his review of the game this way: ‘I beat it with my a__.'”
